A lifetime of over 200 years is not easy to condense but with the much appreciated help from former employees and company associates, we have managed to piece together what we think is a fair and reasonable outline of the firm’s long history without going into too much of the minute detail. We are sure that you will find some aspects of the McKerns story interesting and entertaining.

McKerns has a very long history in Limerick which space will not allow us to go into now.
